A loan of $2,375 helped a member purchase more stock for the shop.


Bushura Tutungukye, Kihihi Group's story

Patrick B., aged 35, is married with a family of four children. He has been operating a retail shop from the Bushura trading center in Kihihi for over 15 years. In here, he trades in a variety of products commonly for domestic use like sugar, salt, soft drinks (sodas, water), cooking oil and much more general merchandise. He does this business alongside his other farming practices that include growing a variety of food crops in Uganda.

His main drawback is that he has a limited variety of products in his shop that cannot satisfy the customers' demand. Therefore, Patrick is looking forward to increasing stock in his business when he gets this loan, and also expanding into a wholesale shop. This will help him earn more revenue and sustain his daily life needs and further educate his children.

He also belongs to a group of members who insure each other in paying back the loan.

In this group: Patrick, Alice, Kellen, Hellen, Justus, Macklean, Provia, Peace, Fulgence, Medius, Yoram, Kereti, Joy, Geofrey, Hope, Hannington
